About

Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention

Founded

Community Helpers was founded in Life Role and Alberta Health Services in cooperation with AMHB

Description

The Community Helpers Program is designed to find the "natural helpers", the youth and adults that our youth already go to when they have issues they need help with, and offer these people, (as well as anyone who would like to begin helping), free training in a wide variety of topics ranging from racism, bullying, substance abuse, pregnancy, sexuality, and many more topics that our youth and young adults may face. The training involves the professional community-especially those with a stake in the metal health of our community-and has these experts come in and teach the lessons of their expertise and give the "helpers" a chance to meet these helping professionals in an effort to connect the formal and informal supports that are available to the troubled youth. Studies have shown that youth ages 13-24yrs old only access professional help 1% of the time they are in need and most don't even know what supports are available to them. Our goal is to increase the amount of support the youth feel is available to them and to increase the knowledge and ability of the "helpers", to help themselves and others when faced with challenging times, and also the tools to know when they or their peers cannot offer the level of help that is needed and where they can turn in those situations. Suicide Prevention is all of our responsiblities and we all have something to offer in the effort.

Mission

Our mission is to build capacity within the community to reduce suicide and suicdal behaviors and to reduce the stigma and shame associated with accessing mental health resources.
